The great thing about doing side hustles to generate extra income is that you can hustle on your own terms. The more hard work, time, and creative effort you put in, the more extra money you can make. You can hustle as little or as much as you want, whenever you want. It’s your extra money, and you can choose how you want to spend it.
Welcome to December, the start of another brand new month! The holiday season is in full effect. Is Christmas going to make you go broke trying to find the perfect gift? I hope not.
November was a busy month for us. The first half of the month included us traveling to Honolulu, Tokyo, Taipei, Hualien, Okinawa, Hong Kong, and San Francisco. I will be slowly writing some trip reports on our travels over the next few weeks. Going back to work wasn’t too bad for either of us, especially since we both enjoy our professions. With our short month, we didn’t have too much time to hustle.
Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we’ve generated in the month of November.

No Rental Income
Our previous two housemates moved out last month, so we didn’t bring in any rental income for November. This being said, we have a new housemate that just joined us this month in December.
We earned $127.77 cash back
We earned $15 worth of Amazon gift certificates from Search and Win sites
We earned $6 in cash from paid surveys
I earned $500 from my consultation side job
All of this totals $648.77 from our side hustles for the month of November. While it hasn’t been the best side hustle month for us, we did get a chance to really relax and visit the other side of the world. Our side hustles helped us avoid feeling any guilt while spending money on our vacation. Have a good December everyone!
